DFG Funding at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics
Through its coordinated programmes, the German Research Organization (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) promotes cooperative, predominant interdisciplinary research. Special research fields, research groups and key areas are distinguished.
The institutes of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics are involved in the following DFG-funded programmes:
Special Research Centres (SFB) are long-term research institutes, in which scientists collaborate within the framework of a scientifically excellent interdisciplinary research programme. Their duration is up to 12 years. In addition to the local SFB, there is also the variant SFB / Transregio, which is supported by two or three university locations.
- SFB 1227: Designed Quantum States of Matter (DQ-mat)
- SFB 1128: Relativistic Geodesy and Gravimetry with Quantum Sensors (geo-Q)
- SFB/TR 123: Planar Optronic Systems (PlanOS)
- Joint Project: Model-based city planning and application in climate change (MOSAIK)
- Joint Project: Disposal Options for Radioactive Residues: Interdisciplinary Analyses and Development of Evaluation Principles (ENTRIA)
Research teams (FG) are usually implemented for six years of close cooperation between several outstanding scientists, working together on a particular research task.
- FG 2247: From Few to Many-Body Physics with Dipolar Quantum Gases
- FG 2316: Correlations in Intergrable Quantum Many-Body Systems
- FG 1807: Advanced Computational Methods for Strongly Correlated Quantum Systems
- FG 1700: Metallic Nanowires on the Atomic Scale: Electronic and Vibrational Coupling in Real World Systems
- FG 1066: Simulation des Überziehens von Tragflügeln und Triebwerksgondeln
Priority Programmes (SPPs) are characterized by the interregional cooperation of the participating scientists. Through the coordinated, locally distributed funding of important new topics, SPP is giving tangible impulses for the further development of research.
- SPP 2026: DFG Priority Programme "Geometry at Infinity"
- SPP 1929: Giant Interactions in Rydberg Systems (GiRyd)
- SPP 1840: Quantum Dynamics in Tailored Intense Fields (QUTIF)
- SPP 1459: Graphene
- SPP 1489: Algorithmic and Experimental Methods in Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory
- SPP 1506: Fluidic Interfaces
- SPP 1388: Darstellungstheorie
- SPP 1327: Optically Induced Nanostructures: Biomedical and Technical Applications
Post Graduate programmes are limited to nine years and are university-based research programmes financed by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
